By constantly exploring the capabilities of pre-fabrication, Island has been able to take part in highly-unique projects. From complex cladding and metal fabrication, to custom-built steel sub-structures, the use of cutting-edge software has been a key to managing information throughout the design and fabrication process. In many cases, Island will partner with an industry-leading vendor to help realize the physical manifestation of today’s façade and structural systems.
